The CVF at VA-MD Vet Med is a student chapter of Christian Veterinary Mission (CVM) that promotes the spiritual growth and professional development of veterinary students. We encourage a close walk with Jesus Christ, fellowship with other believers, and a concern for those around us, as well as an increased awareness of opportunities for Christian service in veterinary medicine.
We strive to meet these goals through studying the Bible, fellowshipping with other believers, praying for specific needs, supporting CVM missions and speaking to our classmates and colleagues about the love of Jesus Christ.
Christian Veterinary Mission
CVM is the parent organization and administrative support to CVF chapters at the 28 veterinary schools in the United States. Started more than 25 years ago by Dr. Leroy Dorminy, CVM is an international, interdenominational relief and developmental non-profit organization that helps facilitate veterinarians to serve others through their profession, living out their Christian faith. CVM also provides education and encouragement for those who desire to minister through service, prayer, relationship building, and modeling Christ’s love.
CVM is based in Seattle, Washington and has over 5000 US veterinarians and veterinary students involved in the organization. Since its inception in 1976, more than 58 veterinarians have served long-term in more than 35 countries and more than 800 short-term veterinary shuttle missions have been undertaken to support the long-term projects. They have shared the love of Christ by teaching and training farmers about basic animal health care, as well as through direct ministering of the gospel of Jesus Christ. CVM also sponsors fellowship/prayer breakfasts at regional veterinary meetings, as well as facilitating student fellowship groups in veterinary schools around the country.
Prayer Meetings & Requests
CVF members meet every Thursday morning at 7:40 a.m. in conference room B to pray for their friends, classmates, colleagues, and professors. If you have a need that you would like to request prayer for, please contact any of the CVF officers or liaisons or write it on paper and place it in the CVF mailbox. Feel free to write unspoken if you would rather not write out your specific prayer need.
“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
“Pray without ceasing.”
